Why Read This Report

Data governance traditionally addresses privacy simply by classifying data for masking or anonymization. But the EU's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will change that. It introduces new consumer rights, requires the involvement of stakeholders beyond legal and security teams, and creates new responsibilities (and new fines). This means firms can no longer manually manage their customers' data privacy. This report explains how enterprise architecture (EA) pros can add privacy management and benefit from impact analysis and soft collaboration among stakeholders.
